Critical Chance

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Critical Chance.png Critical Chance is the probability that an attack will be a critical hit. This can be raised with precision, traits, skills, and weapons. The boon Fury.png Fury grants a flat 20% increase to critical chance.

Without any equipment, traits, skills, food or utility items, a character's base Critical Chance is 5% independent of level.

It is calculated for each hit and not each skill use. That is to say, in multi-hit skills, each hit has a separate critical hit chance.

  • Minimum critical chance is 5% and max is 100%. Note that the displayed critical chance can exceed 100%, but it won't grant any more than 100%.
  • To achieve 100% Critical Chance at level 80 after factoring in the 20% contribution from Fury, 4.76% contribution from Spotter, and 4.76% contribution from Banner of Discipline, a player must reach roughly 70.47% Critical Chance. If within the Fractals of the Mists with the Mistlock Singularities mastery and Infinite Mist Omnipotion, note that 150 Agony Resistance will add an additional 10.71% Critical Chance, meaning players need only 59.76% Critical Chance to reach 100% with all above-mentioned contributions. However, this does not factor in additional profession-specific modifiers to Critical Chance such as Righteous Instincts or Keen Observer. Note that there is no benefit to increasing Critical Chance above 100%.
